seriously address the root of the problem. >> i don't have a problem with raising the debt ceiling. i don't want to cause a problem, but it's got to be spending cuts. >> yeah. >> whether you agree or not. i'm sure you don't agree, but the republicans right now must have this message of spending cuts for the life of them they cannot get out of that. and no more tax increases. i mean, put yourself in their shoes. >> yeah. >> you're a former communications director. don't you think they have got to have that kind of message? >> yes. they have -- but they have to come forward also, larry, with a message that says and here's how we want to do it. and in a way that says, you know, again, because remember part of the reason they're losing this argument is they're very vulnerable to the argument they're trying to protect, you know, the big corporations and, you know, sort of corporate welfare at the expense of the middle class. if they're going to come forward and say here's our plan, it's got to be have a message and here's why it's got for everyone. that's somebody to help everybody. marley whe

's talk more about that. house republicans laying out their strategy in this debt ceiling fight but will this no budget, no pay thing work to address our physical problems? joining us now, douglas holtz-eakin, president of the american action for rim. rich is talking about we're basically punting the debt ceiling three months. should the republicans drop the debt ceiling fight all together and focus on sequester, continuing resolution? they probably have more room to fight? >> getting it in this order, putting debt ceiling last, other bills first is to their advantage because they're fighting about spending on spending bills. this is ultimately an issue that is about how much debt the united states has and is projected to run up. that is ultimately driven by spending. this has to be a spending debate. and administration and because of the administration, the senate, simply is not engaged. this is a way to force the senate to engage, all right, will you put out a budget that shows enormous debt, or put out a budget that fixes it somehow? if they put out budget fixes it with taxes

ceiling has no rational place in this. the president addressed that yesterday, but the fact b is playing russian roulette with the u.s. economy and the well being of our population has no place in an honest debate about how much spending should be cut, how much investment should be made to address these broader economic and social deficits and how to resolve in the and get on to other parts of the national agenda can. sooner or later i think the congress and the president will agree. you saw approaches to this in senator mcconnell's comments in the last couple of weeks and, obviously, in the president's that the key control is in the authorization and appropriation process and the ability to pay those bills through either revenue sources or borrowing ought to be attached to the decision to spend, not used as a point of leverage in broader and more important negotiations. >> thank you, lew. can i just follow up, and i don't know if this is a little bit of a tangent, but i think i just want to ask you because of your position in the financial sector you say that unserbty is -- uncertainty

day for republicans and democrats as they haggle over raising the debt ceiling or not. let's get the latest from kristin welker at the white house. hey, kristin. >> hey, karen. >> there's been some serious stuff, this back and forth today between the white house and john boehner and harry reid and nancy pelosi. is there any response that you're getting from the white house to this latest, quote, unquote pru unquote, plan that the republicans have put forward? >> reporter: the white house is sort of echoing what you're hearing from majority leader reid which is they're encouraged by the fact that the republicans seem to be moving on this issue and willing to increase the debt ceiling. however, i think what is going to be a problem from the white house's perspective is that three months. i was speaking with a senior administration official a little earlier today and he sort of reiterated the fact that the president is opposed to this idea of increasing the debt ceiling in these small increments because it creates crises every couple of months. so that could be a potential problem m

to face the tax issue, as well. it's not just raising the debt ceiling that he's going to have to deal with. but he's going to have to negotiate with the republicans and perhaps try to change the tax code. all of these things are things he's already signaled he wants to do. what's fascinating is that this is a president who wanted to be a domestic president in the last -- in his first term and he was saddled with an economic situation and two wars to deal with. now is a shot to be that domestic president and make some really big change. but he's going to have to work with republicans in the house in order to get big things accomplished. >> and clearly what he wants to do is have some influence on voters. and though the official announcement is expected today, we do know that obama for america is going to become this nonprofit supporting his agenda. what kind of influence could this have? >> well, i think if you're an obama supporter, you hope it has more influence than it did or what they tried to do during his first term. they talked a lot about this leveraging his campaign which ever

to addressing the issues in the country. it is good they have had a good first step agreeing on the debt ceiling, but it seems to be only a first step. connell: the matter what you call it or how you slice it there seems to be issues after the election. now they're on this retreat whether it is the reports coming up with some sort of short-term debt ceiling, the bigger picture, what should the priorities be in your view? >> first, i hope there was shock therapy fo so anybody says the d rape, they shot the whole things we can get away from that tendency somehow and members of our congress. the polling on republican party is focused on washington, which is very interesting since we a party that focuses on state. as a negative view of the washington republicans, we need to start focusing on the success that republicans have in the states. we will talk about that, but chris christie is getting all the attention, but john avalon wrote about how the number of minority governments at the republican party far exceeds the democrats. not just because of ethnicity, but these people like bobby jindal, suzan

ahead of debt ceiling conversations, days after fiscal cliff negotiations. was that deal good for poor people? >> for 30 years, we have not addressed this issue, except for the wonderful work that you and cornel are doing in these wonderful people on the panel. politics has neglected the poor. one could say that there was a war on the poor rather than a war on poverty for much of this period. the united states has by far the most poverty of any of the high-income countries as a share of the population. we have the highest in quality. we have the most entrenched underclass. we have had the biggest increases of any quality by far, and we've had the least political response of any high- income countries, so we are standing out on our own. this has been a 30-year trend of soaring in comes at the top, stagnation in the middle, and falling through the floor on the bottom, and the political system has refused to address this for 30 years. so we have reached a calamitous situation in this country, but the fact of the matter is nothing that was done at the fiscal cliff and what lies ahead most
